We are sorry to announce that our two conferences titled "Translation as Remembering" and "Images in Translation" which were to be held on April 14 and 15, 2020 respectively, have been cancelled as part of the measures Boğaziçi University has taken against the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). 




We are happy to announce the Brown Bag research talk series taking place at our department in Spring 2020. The purpose of our talks is that faculty and PhD students meet and discuss ongoing and completed research projects. More broadly speaking, Brown Bag talks present a platform for sharing and discussing ideas among peers and colleagues and the name itself is based on an American concept (for background information on the broad idea and name of the talks, you can click here), so our version is Kahvaltı sohbetleri!

Talks will take place monthly (on a Tuesday or Thursday) at 9.30am in our fourth floor seminar room (no. 403) accompanied by a small breakfast buffet. Keep watching this space for announcements of further talks in Spring 2020.
